An Arizona woman is facing stalking charges after police say she sent 65,000 texts to a man she met online after going on one date, and broke into his home and bathed in his bathtub.
ABC15 reports that 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades allegedly began stalking her unnamed victim in 2017 after the pair met on an online dating site. After meeting and going out on one date, the suspect reportedly said she fell in love with the victim. In the following days after the date, Ades allegedly began sending text messages to the man, sometimes up to 500 messages per day. The victim told police he asked the suspect to stop contacting him but she wouldn’t listen.
In July 2017, Ades reportedly parked outside of the man’s home in Paradise Valley and started sending back-to-back text messages. Authorities arrived to the scene and escorted her off the property which, according to police, did nothing to stop her unwarranted behavior. She later started sending threatening text messages, the victim told police.

In December 2017, police logged a similar complaint but once they arrived to the victim’s home, they couldn’t locate Ades. Then in April 2018, the victim called authorities while he was out of the country and complained that he spotted Ames while looking over home security surveillance footage online. When deputies arrived at the victim’s home, they found Ades inside the residence, bathing in the man’s bathtub. They also found a large butcher knife inside her car.
Police arrested Ades and charged her with trespassing but upon her release from jail, court documents indicate she started sending bizarre text messages to the victim, caliming that if he ever left, she would kill him and that she wanted to bathe in his blood wear his body parts.
“…Don’t ever try to leave me…I’ll kill you…I don’t wanna be a murderer.”
On May 4, 2018, Ades was arrested again after witnesses in Scottsdale said they saw a woman at a business “acting irrationally and claiming to be the owner’s wife.” Police later determined that the business owner was Ades’ victim. She was subsequently arrested and charged with harassment, stalking, and threatening.
On Thursday, Ades provided an interview to the media while still behind bars, claiming that the victim was her soulmate.
“I felt like I met my soul mate and everything was just the way it was. I thought we would do what everybody else did, but that’s not what happened.”
